yes you can download the vbr" ( variable bit rate) what it does is downloads the whole show at once usally an average of 220mb of space is taken per show.i'm no pro at this stuff but i click vbr zip when it pops up i click save.i save it in my documents.then after its finished down loading i open my documents find the music file then right click the file.then click extract files to the date of the show and thats all there is to it.i hope that helps ya out a little. enjoy the show :)

Thanks. That's what I've been doing with other files, but that VBR Zip thing looked like a mystery, with no file size listed ... and I've been wondering about space issues. I have a general sense that the more the bits (or bytes?), the better the quality, but I have no clue how much I can save on my laptop (4.0 GB) before I start getting a message, "bleeep bleeep, your computer is full!" I'm such a luddite that I don't pay attention to computers, except for writing, until I suddenly need to do something ... So, thanks for the info!

I use Down Them All! with Firefox. It's a free add on. Search for it in Firefox add ons. I change the word "details" in the address bar to "download" then go to that page. It will show all file types and their sizes in bytes. I right click on the page and click Down Them All!. I filter (using fast filter) the download to vbr.mp3, then create a folder to send them to.

4GB laptop? You mean 4GB RAM right, not hard drive. Your hard drive disk space is going to be much higher than 4GB. 4GB isn't enough space for your OS nowadays.

RAM, hard drive ... I've had the difference explained to me, and must google it again sometime, but techno-stuff isn't an innate interest of mine, so I always forget it. I've been dragged kicking and screaming into the web era, believe me. Even though I'm obviously getting all kinds of benefits from it (like all the amazing stuff on this site, which I'm only now trying to figure out how to save -- obviously I'm not an early adopter, LOL!) But yeah, my laptop supposedly has a lot of memory -- unlike me. (At least for anything technical.)
